The COVID-19 pandemic has thrown a huge wrench of uncertainty amongst UKMFG (UK Manufacturing) grinding factories to a halt and forcing them to rethink every process from an array of logistical standpoints
As restrictions start to loosen and manufacturing returns to some semblance of normality, the reality is, everything is different. Staff are still encouraged to work from home where they can, production lines are far from reaching their full potential and everything is done with the invisible but ever present threat of another COVID outbreak.
One of the key changes that manufacturers, including ourselves, are facing is social distancing. Workers sharing tools, workspaces and generally being in close proximity to one another is a huge red flag in this pandemic fuelled world, and one that will remain for some time.
Luckily, it doesn’t have to be a headache for you. The introduction of an automation system can alleviate all the social distancing woes, while maintaining and even increasing your production output. It’s a logical choice.
Automated systems are designed to minimize human input, and while compact, they can also manufacture quicker, and more efficiently helping factories recover ground lost during the pandemic, while also giving staff a chance to learn new skills.
It doesn’t stop there either. Systems can also be manufactured with remote access meaning that even if your machine is to run into problems, as the manufacturer, we can log into your system without leaving our office. This continues the practice of social distancing and means external help is there whenever you need it, without jeopardizing you and your staff.
Social distancing looks set to be the new norm, and if you can’t go back to the way things were, then now’s the time to look forward. Automation isn’t just the solution, it’s the future.
